Lithograph from Adolphe Duperly's 'Daguerian excursions in Jamaica.' As settlements such as Falmouth and Montego Bay developed, roads were constructed between them. Along these roads taverns were built to provide refreshments for travellers. The Moneague Tavern was built on the old Spanish trail leading to St Ann's; it is still there today and was declared a National Monument in 1999. It was built in typical Creole style - the ground floor was kept open to allow air to circulate, the first floor was built with louvered windows and the roof was shingled.
